Cut Entitlements? Nope, just cut Defense

Well now we get to the fun part where the Republicans cave.

As President Obama prepares to meet Monday with Senate leaders to try to restart talks about the swollen national debt, some Republicans see a potential path to compromise: significant cuts in military spending....
“To get anything through the House, you’re going to need some Democratic votes. This isn’t a one-way street here,” said a senior administration official, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss the closed-door sessions. “It’s clear that any package is going to have to have significant spending reductions, including in Pentagon spending.”

And away we go. Has anyone heard a single word about real cuts to any of the gargantuan, massive, bloated, deficit-swelling, government free lunch, entitlement programs? Yeah neither have I. So obviously instead of looking at those with any seriousness, we get the national security brilliance and strategic thinking of a noted gay brothel master.

“Defense spending is damaging spending. Many of us believe it does more harm than good to our people and to our reputation in the world,” said Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.).

Dam u Dum! That might be the most ignorant thing even a professional douchebag like you has ever said. I would explain that your right to say something so incandescently stupid is vouchsafed by the spending but as I previously noted, you are too dumb to understand.

It was inevitable that this process would have some sad, sorry elements, but didn't you hold out just the faintest glimmer of hope that defense and the security of our wouldn't be the first on the chopping block? Yeah no, neither did I. Well at least we can stop buying any of the BS from any of the swine in the Parliament of Hoors.
